Aidan James announces London fight, keen for BRAVE to help European MMA scene
Bantamweight star Aidan James is only four fights into his pro career but is one of the hottest prospects in the world already. The Welshman has announced he will face Cameron Else in the main card of BRAVE 24, set to take place in London, and is excited at the chance to advance his career and help with the development of the sport in European soil.
Coming out of the local scene and a BRAVE veteran of three fights (with three victories), James has inside knowledge on the trials and tribulations of the sport in Europe and is confident that the fastest-growing promotion in the world has a lot to contribute with that development.
“I can truly say, from my experience with the BRAVE team, that the goal here is bigger than individual fights. They want to reach all communities and make sure they experience mixed martial arts. I’ve traveled to incredible places and the fans in all those places have been able to experience for the first time a truly global event. As I grow as a martial artist, I’m very proud to be growing with BRAVE and hope to help them reach out to the MMA community in Europe and in the UK, specifically. I can’t wait to be in action in England and put on a show for everyone”.
James is on a three-fight winning streak for BRAVE and is nearing a title shot against current Bantamweight world champion Stephen Loman. Aidan’s last win came against the former number one contender Jalal Al Daaja in enemy territory, as the Chris Rees Academy product traveled to Jordan to knock out Al Daaja in the third round.
Meanwhile, Else makes his promotional debut on the back of two wins in the local circuit. Fighting out of Kent, England, “Camchida” beat Jordan Ramshaw and Thomas Terdjman in his last two bouts.
BRAVE 24 is set to take place on July 25th, at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, inside the Copper Box Arena. The luxurious event will connect the biggest influencers, politicians, and sportsmen to mixed martial arts and is set to empower the sport in the continent of Europe.
